2d FX animation

Last summer my dad came to visit with my little sister. Not only is was great to finally have my father in my house, but it was also great to hang out with him.
We talked a lot about art and more specifically about animation. He showed me which software he is using to teach animation and a little on how to use it.
The main software he is using is called TVpaint. One thing that I really enjoy about it is that you can start pretty quickly to animate. I'm not going to do a full review of it now. but I wanted to say that i never understood why some software developer try to reinvent the wheel. If you really want to show how good you are, make your software intuitive and user friendly. If that means you have to follow some standards so be it. there are few things in TV paint that are not easy to do. per example, select and move your selection... basic!
anyway, here are some of my animations.

I'll post more when I have more..

Kem Weber Disney Architect

Sorry for the repost but I really enjoyed this article.
Kem weber is the german architect that was in charge of designing the new Walt Disney studio in Burbank in the thirties.
I love the art deco style of the buildings (most of them still standing), and I appreciate that an animation blog talks about an architect and the impact architecture can have on other discipline.

Atom for peace

I'm not a huge fan of Radio head but I like the way Thom Yorke think and what he does and promote.
